This beautiful campground is located right off off the Mountain loop Highway where the NF Sauk & SF Sauk join and become the Sauk River.  There is a non-motorized boat launch accessing the Sauk River.  The campground is surrounded by miles of hiking trails and other recreation.

The Bedal US Forest Service Campground is named after a very important early pioneer family that homesteaded this area.  Bedal grew into small logging settlement with a schoolhouse, there was a store at another neighboring town east of  where the current campground is called Orient and a ranger station to the north.  The campground bearing the name Bedal is on part of the homestead. Leaving us the name Bedal, is only a small part of the legacy this family left to Darrington and  the Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe.
